There’s no doubt Tanzanian mega star Diamond Platnumz is living the life, and he has an ever blossoming career to thank for it.
And with his ever expanding family (two kids, and counting..), Simba as he is known by his fans, has every reason to work even harder, of course with the help of his stunning Ugandan socialite wife Zari Hassan.
Just recently, the ‘Salome’ hitmaker spread his wings outside of the continent. After a much felt presence in the lucrative Nigerian music scene, Platnumz hooked up with US R&B/Pop talent Ne-Yo on ‘Marry You’ which is doing great, if the YouTube numbers are anything to go by -over 2.4 million views in just one week.
But as the old adage goes, all work and no play makes Diamond a very dull boy, hence his known love for cars. A collection that can put most millionaires to shame.
But he is East Africa’s biggest and most successful artiste so he has to look the part, like a million bucks. That is a nice excuse to add a BMW i8 to his family of rides. I hear Kev Mullei of Mo Sounds also owns such.
But Diamond Platnumz takes his swag a notch higher, his matches his blue kicks – you know how the 29-year-old rolls.
Diamond hit the headlines recently after Tanzanian authorities listed him as one of the people being suspected to be trafficking drugs. The bust targeted top artists who are being snitched on their dealers.
Diamond’s own brother was among those arrested. Others were singers Ray C, TID and Diamond’s ex Wema Sepetu among others.
